Easily Adjusts to Fit Your Setup

Towing trailers with different coupler sizes just got easier thanks to the 180 Hitch 2-ball mount. This ball mount features a 2" and 2-5/16" hitch ball on opposite ends of the ball mount platform. Switching to the opposite ball is fast and easy - simply flip over the platform, hitch-up, and go! Because both balls are contained on the platform, you won't have to keep track of separate balls that must be completely removed and installed each time you need to switch trailers.


Adjusting and setting up the 180 Hitch 2-ball mount to work with your specific trailer is easy. To switch hitch balls, unlock and pull out the dual pins and remove the platform from the shank. Next, flip the platform 180 degrees so that either the 2" or 2-5/16" hitch ball is on top. Then replace the platform and slide it along the shank to the desired height. Insert the dual pins and use one of the included keys to lock the pins in place. A dual-sided hitch ball with a 1-7/8" and a 2" hitch ball (TB03 - sold separately) is also available.


The 180 Hitch 2-ball mount can be used in either the drop or rise position to best suit your application.


Superior Aluminum and Stainless Steel Construction

From the first moment that you lay eyes on the 180 Hitch you'll see that you're getting a superior, well-made product. The 180 Hitch's shank and ball mount platform are made entirely of 6061 T6 billet aluminum, which is the same material that is used to build aircraft components, automobile frames, and freight liners. This type of aluminum is known for having superior strength while maintaining its light weight, which makes it highly desirable over hollow steel components. 6061 T6 aluminum is also rustproof, which means the 180 Hitch will maintain its clean, shiny, and impressive appearance for years to come. And the hitch balls are made of solid stainless steel, offering far greater protection against rust and corrosion than other steel hitch balls that are only painted or plated on the surface.


The 180 Hitch meets VESC V-5 regulations and is SAE J684 certified. These regulatory bodies - the Vehicle Equipment Safety Commission and the Society for Automotive Engineers - create standards for the design, construction, and performance of automotive and towing accessories. Weigh Safe has had this ball mount thoroughly tested in simulation to ensure that it complies with these standards. The result is a strong, safe, sturdy product that is built to last.

Video Transcript for Weigh Safe 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount with Stainless Balls Review

Hello neighbors, it's Brad here at etrailer, and today we're taking a look at the Weigh Safe 180 2-ball trailer hitch for a 3-inch hitch. Now this is gonna have an 8 inch rise as well as an 8 inch drop. So when you tow multiple different trailers sometimes it's really inconvenient to have to carry around a bunch of different hitches and different ball sizes to accommodate whatever trailer that you're actually hooking up to. That's where this 180 comes in place because, as the name implies, you can actually flip this around and go from a 2 5/16 ball to a 2 inch ball pretty quickly. And the great part about this is it's also locked in place, whereas a lot of your other adjustable ball mounts will have two pins and they kind of can be cumbersome because they're heavy. This one actually uses a nice little system.

So behind this rubber cover here that's gonna protect our lock and included in the kit is your key here. And you're gonna simply unlock this and that's gonna allow you to pull these pins out, and you can see they're actually connected, so it's really nice, but that way it's just one thing here. And then if you need to adjust, you can absolutely do that. Or if you just need to swap over to the other ball, as the name implies, you just do a 180 and slide it back up. Then once you have it in place, you can simply just slide this in and it locks in place like that.

So not your accessories are gonna go off walking, especially if you have a locking hitch pin. We have a few of those available here at E trailer if that's something you wanna pick up, but that way you can leave this on the vehicle and know that it's not gonna disappear in the hands of someone else. Now, something else that's really nice about this system is some of your other adjustable ones, these can be extremely heavy. So when you're trying to adjust this and get those two pins in, it's kind of a pain, but this is actually aluminum. So relatively lightweight, you can see I can move it pretty easily.

The balls are actually stainless. So that's really nice in the fact that this towing end is gonna be nice and sturdy. The aluminum is also very sturdy as well, you can see where our pin actually goes through here to lock it in place. The stainless balls are extremely durable and strong. And with that comes a pretty high towing weight capacity.

In fact, your 2 5/16 ball can tow up to 21,000 pounds, and when you flip over to your 2 inch ball that's gonna be 8,000 pounds. So a decent amount for your gross trailer weight rating, which is gonna be the weight of the trailer plus the accessories loaded up. Now, as far as the tongue weight rating, it's also rated for 2200 pounds and that's a decent amount. So all that pressure pushing down on here, hold up to 2200. Now it's important with those numbers to also make sure that your vehicle as well as your hitch also meet those standards. And out of all those numbers, you wanna make sure that you're picking the lowest of those just to stay safe. Now with that high gross trailer weight rating, that's because we are in a 3 inch hitch. So this is gonna be made for some heavy duty stuff, and this is gonna be able to keep up with it, no problem. So say you're done towing a 2 5/16 coupler and you need to swap over to a 2 inch ball on a trailer that might sit a little bit higher. No problem, you can simply pull out your hitch pin, raise this up into the raise position and you still have that adjustability. So being able to not only have a drop but a raise and also adjust in this actual rail, that's gonna offer you a ton of adjustability to get to the trailer hooked up the way you need it. So if you need to adjust back to whatever height or a drop, no problem, you can simply pull this out again and swap it. But as I pull it out, you might notice it's relatively light. Now I'm not a particularly strong person, but some of the other full steel ones are extremely heavy and they are a lot to tow around. Now being aluminum, this is nice and lightweight, but you still have a solid sturdy ball mount that's gonna be able to tow a ton because this is solid aluminum. Another thing that's great about aluminum is it's gonna be rust free, so you don't have to worry about this corroding and looking terrible after a few years, it's gonna look nice and shiny. Overall, I think this is an awesome ball mount because I've dealt with some of the other adjustable ones. You can still get the same amount of adjustability with those, and a lot of times you can get two balls, but where this one really stands out is the aluminum. The fact that it's gonna be rust-free and it's really light. The other ones are extremely heavy. And I really like the two-pin system. It makes it super easy rather than having to get two pins in or have to keep track of two pins, this is all in one and it locks. So that's one less thing that you have to worry about disappearing. And that was a look at the Weigh Safe 180 3 inch ball mount with a 8 inch rise and an 8 inch drop. Also with stainless balls of 2 5/16 as well as 2 inch..

One hitch for ALL my towing needs! The product has a great design and is very well made; I would highly recommend it to others wanting to reduce clutter in their truck tool box. With this product, you need only to carry one highly configurable hitch. The hitch is designed to adjust drop(raise) height in seconds.

I think this brand of tow bar is the best out there, because the wire is supported and the safety cables are attached and it all stores on the motor home. I had a lighter weight Demco bar for eight years and really liked it. I bought this heavy tow bar because we will be towing a Ford F250 and needed the heavy rated tow bar. After owning a Demco for eight years, I would recommend this bar for a heavy super duty truck.

Ask the Experts about this Weigh Safe Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

  • Recommended Weigh Safe Adjustable Ball Mount for 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch
    The Weigh Safe 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount # LTB8-3 referenced in your question is designed to fit 3 inch receivers, which refers to the inside dimension of the receiver. Since you have a 2-1/2 inch receiver on your 2017 Ford F-350, I instead recommend the 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount # LTB8-25. This aluminum, adjustable ball mount is designed to fit the hitch on your truck and features a maximum drop of 8 inches or a maximum rise of 9 inches. It has a gross towing weight of 14,500 pounds when using...

  • Recommended Adjustable Ball Mount for Towing 3000 lb Trailer
    If I had to choose between a Weigh Safe 180 such as # LTB8-3 or the B&W Tow & Stow, part # BWTS10037B adjustable ball mounts, I'd choose the B&W model hands-down, every time. The B&W is the heavier of the two, and it feels like the manufacturer did a better job machining it. The parts fit together more tightly, which will result in less rattle and movement when you're towing. It's also the least expensive. Either ball mount would have plenty of capacity for a trailer weighing 3K. I've...

  • Is There A Weigh Safe 180 Ball Mount Available With A 1-7/8" Ball For A 3" Hitch
    I do have another option available that will suit your needs, but we currently do not offer a Weigh Safe 180 that is compatible with a 3" hitch and has a 1-7/8" ball, unfortunately. With that being said, the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount - 3" Hitch # BWTS30049B will have the same 21,000 pound capacity, but will have slightly less drop/rise at 7-1/2". This will also include 1-7/8", 2", and 2-5/16" balls, making it extremely versatile.

  • Can the Hitch Balls on the 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount for 3" Hitch Be Stowed
    The 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount w/ Stainless Balls part # LTB8-3 is not stowable, only the 2" and 2.5" models are. If you want stowable then you'll have to go with the B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount part # BWTS30040B. The main difference is that the 180 Hitch is made of aluminum and the B&W is made of steel.
